Heat the oven to 375°F. Spray a 13x9x2-inch baking dish with vegetable cooking spray. Season the potatoes as desired.
Stir the soup, sour cream, 1 cup cheese, milk, garlic powder and black pepper in a medium bowl.
Spread the potatoes in the baking dish. Top with the chicken. Spread the soup mixture over the chicken. Cover the baking dish.
Bake for 40 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and the mixture is hot and bubbling. Uncover the baking dish. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
Bake, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Sprinkle with the bacon and chives before serving.
